They are company wheels (optional) and not aftermarket ones. The New M5 pictures released also run on these same designs.

Yes Speedy!

That's why I said that they 'could' be replicas. They might be optional from the factory as well, but it's hard to distinguish the original from imitation. However, I will take your word for it. They must be the optional factory wheels.

P.S. A few pages earlier, Abhijeetsng posted a picture of the BMW CS Concept that's wearing very similar, if not, the same wheels!

That is some serious mind blowing photography! It's like the M3 was made for BBS LMs!

theragingbull,

Those aren't BBS my friend! Although they look extremely similar and can actually pass off as LMs from a distance and from close quarters or even on the move. Here are another set of wheels from the same make '360::Forged'

BMW & BBS make an absolutely lethal combo! They are made for each other.
You guys don't even need to put up pics here, the thought itself is so fascinating.

Dont let looks deceive you... this isnt an SL65 Black series.. in fact, its not even a V12!! this is an SL55 AMG with an aftermarket bodykit!! but that doesnt make this badboy any less sinful!!

Volk TE37's - Seem to be the must have wheels in the tuner crowd around the world. And I can see why.

I've always found these set of wheels on the Punto abarth very appealing. Would love to have ones like these on my car. Might get a Punto itself if they offered it with these alloys

I'm not entirely sure, but if you go a few pages back, you might find a post with Abarth pictures. I agree! They are amazing and I'd love to go in for a Punto just for those wheels.

Oh yes! Versatile is an understatement! They do look good on just about every car, don't they? I think hey set the 458 off very nicely! Especially the Oakley-Design 458 Italia, with its blackened roof et al.
